I do. What happens is a known phenomenon: you make a mountain out of a molehill. This is not only for drama queens; we all know it’s not good and we all do it.
This month I share one of my ‘moments’ and my way to get back on the train; back to the happy, productive, creative life I dream of.
Stupid tiny steps
Another example: You want to exercise. Actually, you are not in the mood but you want that satisfied feeling after having exercised. The trick: get out of your cloth. Once you are undressed, it is not so difficult to put your sport shirt on. Then you can sit on the couch in your running outfit, but it is so much easier now to really get out of the door.
Since I know and practice kaizen, the overwhelmed moments resolve more easily. And faster. I ask myself: What is the tiniest step I can do RIGHT NOW to get closer to the desired result.
Hoe eet je een mega grote olifant op? Gewoon hapje voor hapje. How to eat a huge elephant? Just bite by bite.
To remind myself (and you) of the beauty of tiny steps, I created a painting about it. And as you can see, I'm also optimalising my painting video's. Tiny step by tiny step :)
